They actually get tumors mostly on the genitals and under the tail. My appy has had melanoma for most of his life. It affects all horses differently. Luckily, my boy's cancer isn't a very aggressive one (knock on wood) and at the age of 24 my vet said that its very unlikely it will be the death of him, but it has been known to be fatal in some horses.
